L.A. Confidential

I saw this once before, back in college, and I just didn't care for it. I don't know what the heck was wrong with me.

Thankfully, seeing the BluRay on sale for 5 bucks was enough for me to decide to reconsider the film, which I watched a few days ago. It's pretty damn good! Dark and gritty, mystery and intrigue, and 1950's Hollywood style.

We've got three cops, played by Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, and Guy Pearce, who are investigating a series of murders. Each cop has their own style and values, which often conflict with the others. As events begin to intersect each other, the men find themselves having to work together, which brings its own set of problems.

Simply put, this is a very sleek and stylish very noir film. Our leading men are all fantastic with very interesting characters, and they each find a way to bring a new spin on familiar archetypes. We've also got Kim Basinger in an Oscar winning turn as a starlet lookalike who gets caught in the middle.

This is certainly one to watch free of distractions, lest you get lost in all its twists and turns. Believe me, it'll be worth it
